SC Johnson Joins Wind Farm Program in Mexico

April 4, 2013

• MEXICO: SC Johnson is participating in the Comision Federal de Electricidad’s (CFE/Federal Electricity Commission) wind farm program, a power purchase agreement that will enable the firm to increase the use of renewable energy at its Toluca, Mexico facility to an estimated 86% and decrease its greenhouse gas emissions for the same facility by 57%.

This represents the next step in the company’s commitment to increasing its usage of renewable energy, according to SC Johnson.

“SC Johnson is committed to reducing its environmental footprint, and using fewer resources through the increased use of renewable energy is an important part of the equation,” said Fisk Johnson, chairman and CEO. “Using wind power at our Toluca manufacturing facility is another step in our journey. We’re thrilled to be able to bring families, in Mexico and beyond, products like Glade and Pledge that have been made using fewer resources.”

The turbines are in Oaxaca and were constructed by ENEL, a multinational leader in power and gas, in partnership with the Comision Federal de Electricidad, which provides the infrastructure for energy transport. SC Johnson will begin using the purchased wind power mid-2013.

Participation in the program, and the purchase agreement, demonstrate the company’s commitment to increasing its use of renewable energy to 44% of total electricity use worldwide by 2016.
